It fills those dark and groggy places, bringing light and gladness there. Thanks! LikeLike Good morning, Martha. You are welcome! Love and thanks, Ellen LikeLike Oh wow…you write lots of these short, inspirational poems…reminds me a lot of my wife—many of her poems are “short and sweet”, but with tons of power packed into just a few lines. You should definitely check her out at rosemarymint.wordpress and you would be a great addition at dverse poets…I love to find inspirational writers there. LikeLike Thank you. I look forward to reading your wife’s poems–will visit all the sites you mention. Blessings to you both, Ellen LikeLike I hadn’t quite thought of our art being our thanksgiving. Maybe I should allow my self to do more of that, instead of, if there’s time… LikeLike Thank you, Patti. Thanks again, Merrill. LikeLike Out of our contemplation come praise and creativity. Given the gift of time is the most precious gift of all… and our art is our thanksgiving. LikeLike Thank you, Merrill. Contemplation is essential for me as well. I love what you said, “…our art is our thanksgiving.” Blessings, Ellen LikeLike Comments are closed.
